OKLAHOMA CITY (March 24, 2014) Feed The Children is proud to join with Great Clips for the Great Clips 300 Benefiting Feed The Children NASCAR Nationwide Series event on Aug. 30. The race will take place over Labor Day weekend at the Atlanta Motor Speedway in Hampton, Georgia.
“We are very excited and honored to be a part of the Great Clips 300 race,” said Corey Gordon, Chief Marketing and Communications Officer for Feed The Children. “This partnership with Great Clips, Atlanta Motor Speedway and Feed The Children will help shine a spotlight on hunger and poverty issues in the United States, helping us further our mission that no child or family should go to bed hungry.”
Feed The Children and Great Clips are also teaming up to help homeless school children across the United States. Customers who donate $1 to Feed The Children at a Great Clips location will receive a $2 off coupon for their next haircut. Donations will help provide students experiencing homelessness with a backpack filled with school supplies, books, personal care items and snacks.
"One of the opportunities that comes from being a successful business is the ability to make a difference in the communities where we operate," says Great Clips Director of Communications Tammy Nienaber. "More than 200 Great Clips salons in the southeast will work together to help Feed The Children provide backpacks to homeless children at back to school this fall. Even small acts of support can be a Great Deed(TM) to someone in need."
